A Phoenix Rises from the Ashes in Iraq

Posted by Admin

“In the wake of the wars, the (Iraqi) capability to launch and field helicopters was reduced to ashes,” said U.S. Army Col. Thomas J. Trossen, the former Chief of Army Aviation Division for U.S. Forces – Iraqi, Advising and Training Mission from July 2010 to July 2011. “It seems only fitting that the headquarters of the emerging Iraqi Army aviation force should be located at a place called Pheonix Base in the International Zone.” [Read More...]

Offshore EMS - When Life Matters

Posted by Admin

Posted by Admin

A few seconds later, we are on top, but since we are still on an IFR departure, we’re still flying on the gauges. [Read More...]
